Paul Sams Debunks Next-Gen MMO Announcement at BlizzCon 2010

Forbes >interviewed Blizzard Chief of Operations (COO) Paul Sams, who debunked rumors that BlizzCon 2010 would be the platform to reveal the Next-Gen MMO. A particular comment no doubt keeps the rumor mill engines going forth. The Next-Gen MMO now counts with 140 employees and development is at full speed.

Blizzard Quote:
“We have built a development team for that product from our top talent here and augmented it with some of the best and brightest from around the industry,” Sams says. “The product is something we think is going to re-design the way these types of games are looked at.”

In August, Activision Blizzard chief Bobby Kotick suggested that the new MMO would not be based on existing franchises, in the company’s first-quarter conference call.

Sams dispelled rumors that the company would be saying anything new about the upcoming game at its BlizzCon videogame conference at the end of this month. “It’s not something we’re announcing at BlizzCon,” he says.

Thanks, Vincent
